i remember a worm sticking out of my siamese kitties butt one time - i know it was saying 'daylight! free at last.' pulled it out with a kleenex - pet owners do wacky things.
Avatar 7:05pm Chucks Paranormal:

The 3 dogs we've had since I got married have all been rescues and all have been great dogs. German Shepard, Beagle and now a Manchester Terrier / Besinji mix
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Greg will we ever see the conclusion of Moondog's adventures?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm mb:

There should be a In Real Life intro music contest.

mb - I don't feel like the week is complete unless I am hearing Egyptian Shumba some place :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm Greg from ZONE 5:

@Aaron: Good news: YES!
Bad news: Probably not til later this year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm queems:

is this going to be like that sad sarah mclachlan commercial
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Richard S:


Don't forget rescue cats!
Avatar 7:13pm Chucks Paranormal:

The German Shepard we got, back in 1999, was a 6 month old puppy that was in a kill shelter in NYC. Somebody there contacted a person she knew at a local shelter and said they had a great dog that she felt would be a great pet, but time was running out. The local shelter was not supposed to take in animals from other shelters, so they created a cover story that the dog was found locally running on a street. So we lucked out and so did the dog that he was not put down at such an early age. He lived until he was 11, cancer ended up taking him. But one of the greatest pets I ever had.
  7:14pm Emily:

@queems! I can absolutely promise, with no exception, that there will be no Sarah McLaughlan on this show.
  7:15pm Emily:

Hi everybody! @Dale—yikes! Worms!
Avatar 7:15pm kimzilla:

Spoilers. There is a gross paw story, but he's ok.
Avatar 7:16pm kimzilla:

My dog had worms once, but I didn't know, I kept wondering why I kept finding wild rice in my bed. It wasn't rice.
  7:16pm Emily:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm melinda:

I admire her for throwing herself into rescue right after her dog died. After my kitty died following a couple of years of kidney disease I was sad but felt a weight had been lifted, too.
Avatar 7:17pm kimzilla:

Oh, I forgot this sad story.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm queems:

for every sad animal i hope there are 10 happy animals
  7:17pm Emily:

@melinda I totally get that—I had an old cat who was riddled with medical issues for years. She was truly dear to me, but there was a sense of relief in finally letting her go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm queems:

my family just lost our cat to cancer 2 weeks ago (we had him since i was a senior in high school) it was devastating, but i agree about the sense of relief
Avatar 7:19pm dale:

emily - if they were an outdoor animal first like many of our pets they WILL have worms from rodents.
Avatar 7:21pm dale:

we lost our 16 year old buttercup three weeks ago to kidney failure. it's never easy but you learn how to not freak out and keep them purring until they can't anymore.
  7:21pm Emily:

@dale mmhm, that makes sense—I remember my rescue kitty had worms from being outside for years, but I never saw one actually EXIT HER BODY!
  7:22pm Emily:

  7:22pm Emily:

(That’s how I’m imagining it)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Greg from ZONE 5:

So sorry to hear that, queems. Fortunately I'll never have to experience that, as I have given my cat explicit instructions never to die under any circumstances.
Avatar 7:23pm dale:

emily, i'm sure the worm was just as shocked by the sight of me as i was by it.
  7:23pm Emily:

@queems I’m so sorry—that is never easy, no matter how old or sick they are.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm queems:

@greg thanks! although i hate to be the one to tell you this, but cats are typically not the best listeners
Avatar 7:24pm dale:

'what is this race of strange giants out side of my warm space?'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm queems:

thanks, emily! my mom is pouring all of her extra love into her other cat
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm melinda:

My sister's cat was expected to die from kidney failure within a week but she's still kickin' over a month later. They don't know why.
Avatar 7:26pm dale:

queems - i hope you got to be with her kitty at the very end. it's not easy but they appreciate it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm queems:

@dale i got to say my goodbyes a couple days before, but i couldn't be there on the last day. i think he got the message, though. hope you are holding up ok, too.
Avatar 7:29pm dale:

melinda - we had a cat who presented in kidney failure who soldiered on over a year. his b.u.n. and creatinine levels stabilized. we gave him epakitin powder in his food but it was probably just not quite his time.
Avatar 7:31pm dale:

queems - she's buried in the back with her family and a lot of nice perennial bulbs to remind us of her every spring.
Avatar 7:35pm kimzilla:

Sounds like we have some friends of the felines on the message board!
Avatar 7:35pm dale:

i recently read that there is a high depression and suicide rate among veterinarians. i get it.
Avatar 7:38pm kimzilla:

I listened to that episode of DSM Dale. That was a sad episode.
Avatar 7:38pm dale:

kimzilla - pets are less likely to be jerkoffs than people. some are but not a high percentage.
  7:39pm Karen:

@dale That’s so sad because pets bring so much joy to people. They can increase life expectancy of their humans more than spouses! Yet vets who help people care for their furry friends are at greater risk for suicide?!
Avatar 7:39pm kimzilla:

I think if you work in rescue you learn that humans are awful, really really awful.
Avatar 7:40pm dale:

i had to look up what DSM means - wnyc i assume and i'll look for it. thanks for the heads up kimzilla.
Avatar 7:40pm kimzilla:

From what I recall from that episode it was a specific issue in Texas, and with Vet Assistants. Low salary, many hours, lots of PTSD. Terrible combo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm chris:

hi, everyone. my little rescue puppers is listening and wants to meet all the dogs he's hearing.
  7:42pm Karen:

It’s like when they don’t give lifeguards sufficient breaks to help keep them vigilant. Doctors and veterinarians and health workers need to have support systems so they don’t burn out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Greg from ZONE 5:

AWW I'm eating dinner here, ladies!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm ultradamno:

Every cat I've ever had found the house and just stayed.
  7:44pm Hypertoast:

@Greg from Zone 5 haha, so am I!
  7:44pm Karen:

@kimzilla But think about the awesome people involved in rescue too! (I know I’m a mush. I realize the sad, bad people whom cause us to need to make up for our species, but then after being moved to do something, I try to focus on the good humans to keep me going.)
  7:47pm Emily:

Sorry guys!
  7:48pm Karen:

We’re renters right now, so we can’t foster yet. We’re not even supposed to have any furry pets, but we’re looking into changing that. A friend fosters and is helping trying to fit a dog to our home as soon as we can legally have one. She’s who’s right in the world by helping find homes for pups!
Avatar 7:51pm dale:

if dogs have luggage is it high-end puuci?
Avatar 7:52pm kimzilla:

@Karen, you are so right. It's all the parts that make this system work.
  7:53pm Karen:

@kimzilla And thank you for doing show(s) on it!
Avatar 7:53pm kimzilla:

Can you see how the crate just fits in the back of this plane? It barely fit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Pucci…there's a Simpsons joke here but I can't find it…
  7:54pm Emily:

@dale haha!
Avatar 7:55pm dale:

kimzilla - those are your doggies? adorbs!
  7:59pm andrewb:

while we were looking for a foster dog, our 7year old daughter found out that black ones were harder to place so guess what flavor we've had for 8 years
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Ha! Nice one.
Avatar 7:59pm dale:

anndrewb - her logic saved them no doubt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Ike:

My cat (not the one in the GIF) steals my rubber sandals. She carries them off in her mouth and gnaws them!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm OfficerDowney:

enough cat talk. honky tonk music is for dogs.
  8:11pm Sarah C:

So Tammy and Jeff are my parents' neighbors. I grew up across the street from them. Weird!
